Residence Hall History

Courtney Hall opened in 1989.  It is named after Samuel Courtney, an African American student (Class of 1882) who later became a Harvard M.D.  Courtney also served as the chief northern organizer for Booker T. Washington, who sent several southern African American students from Tuskegee Institute for training at Massachusetts 'normal schools' in the late 19th century.
